P.N. “Pat” Elrod, best known for The Vampire Files and the Jonathan Barrett: Gentleman Vampire series, co-edited Time of the Vampires, and has stories in several other anthologies. A great fan of Forever Knight, she collaborated with actor Nigel Bennet (LaCroix) on Keeper of the King and His Father’s Son. She is currently working on a new set of toothy titles and branching into the mystery and science fiction genres.From Publishers Weekly:
Elrod ties up some loose ends from Cold Streets and picks up where 2006's Song in the Dark left off in Jack Fleming's swaggering 12th adventure. Jack, a hard-boiled vampire PI/club owner in 1938 Chicago, subdues and wins over Gabe Whitey Kroun, a big bad gang boss from New York whom Jack soon discovers is also undead. Whitey's vampire blood helps Jack's best friend, Charles Escott, survive a deadly infection and injuries from a nasty fight, but it may turn him into a bloodsucker. Elrod sometimes gets too caught up in nostalgic gangster-style chatter, but the action is solid, and while newcomers might feel like they've wandered into a half-finished film starring Humphrey Bogart and Vincent Price, fans will be thrilled.
